King was arrested at 9:37 a.m. Wednesday by the Oxford County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies first responded at 11:50 p.m. Tuesday to King’s residence at 25 Denmark Road, according to Oxford County Chief Deputy James Urquhart.

King, who owns the home, apparently got into a fight with the upstairs. Urquhart said King brandished a firearm and barricaded himself in the downstairs floor of the home.

“Alcohol was involved, and things got out of hand,” said Urquhart.

The tenants, who had several children, left the home before officers arrived. When law enforcement arrived to handle the complaint, they decided to call in the State Crisis Negotiation Team because of the presence of firearms. Deputies entered the home around 7 a.m., and King surrendered.

Urquhart said shots were fired during the standoff, although it didn’t appear that they were fired at police. Three guns, including two handguns and a rifle, as well as a large collection of medieval swords, all belonging to King, were taken from the residence. Urquhart said the investigation into the standoff was still ongoing.

Urquhart said King had had no run-ins with police prior to the standoff.
